Vanguard Records has signed the powerful rock/pop group, The
Alternate Routes and has released their label debut, Good and
Reckless and True on March 13, 2007.
The Alternate Routes, which include co-founders Tim Warren (lead
vocals/acoustic guitar) and Eric Donnelly (guitar), Chip Johnson
(bass), Stephen Chopek (drums) and Mike Sembos (keyboard/electric
guitar), have never been afraid to work hard and take risks during
their turbulent journey. Based in Bridgeport, Connecticut, they are
five talented young musicians whose strong work ethic both in the
studio and on the road have led to a solid fan base, airplay on an
influential Boston radio station and now, a label deal with Vanguard
Good and Reckless and True, produced by Jay Joyce (Patty Griffin,
John Hiatt), is a collection of eleven songs born out of pain, faith,
personal tragedy, passion, humor and desperation. From the haunting
first track, "Ordinary" to the straightforward driving rock
tune "Aftermath" to the gorgeous tone of the first single "Time is a
Runaway," the CD is a cooperative statement that tells a story with
engaging lyrics, melodic themes and a rhythm section that complements
each of the various moods.
With an inspiring new record to introduce themselves by, The
Alternate Routes are now ready to take their music to another level.
